Phys Ed

Take it outside!! Find some physical activity outdoors during this time. During one of our google meets we will discuss the variety of ways we are keeping ourselves active during at home learning.


The week of May 10-14 was to be our jump rope event. Even though we can’t do it together, I would encourage students, if possible, to do some type of heart-healthy activity during the week and email photos to your teacher that we can share once they return to school. I also encourage families to fundraise online. Gift cards are available to be won through fundraising.

I have several prizes for draws for those students who are able to ask family and friends for donations.

Go to the website to donate. Click on DONATE, then DONATE TO A SCHOOL. Enter “Canyon Elementary” in the search bar. You may collect donations until the end of May.

Thank you,

Mrs. Riedel (coordinator)
